Where Should I Install My Honeywell 5869 Panic Button?

The 5869 Wireless Panic Button should be installed in an inconspicuous but accessible area, such as under a desk or register. It can be installed anywhere, as long as it can communicate with the receiver. Be sure to install it as far away from metal, furniture, and appliances as possible.

As stated above, when installing the 5869, place it far away from metal, furniture, and appliances. Metal, concrete, and heavy grade building materials can significantly affect the communication range of the device. it is important for the user to remember that the panic button can be installed anywhere, as long as it can communicate with the receiver. The ideal place to install the panic button would be any area that can be easily reached in case of an emergency.

The panic switch is typically used for holdup situations, where an alarmed employee secretly activates the unit under their desk or countertop. The panic button can also be installed in a user's home, giving the homeowner an additional way to trigger a panic alarm. The user should be aware that the 5869 needs to be reset with its included tool, a small plastic key, after each button press. It's important to keep track of this key, as Honeywell doesn't supply replacements.

The device is supervised, so if the system that it’s programmed to doesn’t receive a check-in signal, it will let the user know that it’s having communication issues with the panic button. If the user's system is monitored, make sure to put it on test before adding the panic button. The user's alarm company should help them program the device to the system. Test the device before taking the system off test to prevent the user's central station sending authorities to the location. After the install is complete, users should let their alarm company know that they have added a new device to their system.

Once the 5869 is installed, then all you need to do is add it to the system.
